Bangkok Governor Orders Immediate Action After Udomsuk Intersection Floods Due to Heavy Rain and Slow Drainage


On May 22nd, 2024, Bangkok Governor Chadchart Sittipunt, along with relevant agencies, conducted a field inspection at Udomsuk Intersection in Bang Na, Bangkok, to address road flooding caused by slow drainage due to heavy rain.

Governor Chadchart and the agencies had also inspected the area the previous night, May 21st, following severe traffic congestion caused by heavy evening rain, which took more than 30 minutes to drain the overflowed water.

During the inspection, officials found that some sewers contained small fragments of brick and cement. Additionally, the bottoms of some sewers were uneven, and certain sidewalks lacked proper slopes to direct water into the sewers, as reported by Governor Chadchart.

In response, Governor Chadchart issued an order for immediate action to clean the sewers and implement other necessary measures to prevent future flooding in the area. He emphasized that these steps would ensure that Udomsuk Intersection would not experience flooding again.
